Recently ZHQ came up with a Tangle Spinner Project for their annual 12 Days of Zentangle. Inspired by the project, I decide to give the spinner idea my own creative twist & came up with the “Tangle Choice GAME BOARD”
I have been practicing Zentangle art for a couple years now and while I have some favorite tangles, I do know quite a lot of patterns. Though this might sound good, but sometimes it’s quite daunting as to what tangles to choose next to put on the tiles……. and I felt this task of choosing should not take away the Zen from my Zentangle Practice 🙂 Hence this game board to make the choice of tangles easier!!
This Game Board is made on artists quality 180 gsm Grey Art Paper. I have used Black, Green & Blue Pigma Micron Pens and shaded with graphite & general’s white chalk. In the center of the game board I have drawn a Diamond Studded Gem using my polychromos color pencils & sakura pens. It has about 75 tangle patterns in total!!
Here’s presenting the work-in-progress picture of the Board….
If you notice the board closely, it is like a pie divided into 12 segments!! Each segment is numbered 1 through 12
I intend to use game dice to work through this board….. One can use a pair of dice numbered 1 to 6. So by the roll of 2 dice once, I have the choice of which segment to use.
Each segment has 6-7 patterns within them. Once the segment is decided, I can choose tangles within the segment randomly or I can roll a single dice a second time to choose a tangle within the segment!
You can come up with more creative ways, of your own, on how to use this board!!
Create one & have fun tangling!!
